Seeding to the mirrors
By Giuseppe Maxia on Nov 25, 2008
If you hear a distant rumble in the air, it could be either Dups testing his new mountaineering gear, or, more likely, MySQL 5.1-GA seeding to the mirrors.
We promised that it would come soon, and it's coming. All internal QA automated tests were passed, a batch of additional manual tests with the packaged binaries (called "smoke tests" internally) were performed to make sure that no embarrassing errors were left, and now the train of bits is traveling to the mirrors. Once the mirrors are loaded, expect the announcement, within a few days.
